A VW Bus, Your Congregation, and Renovation


People of all ages recognize the iconic VW Bus. The look of the bus fills some with nostalgia, a wistfulness for a different time. The reality is some hearts may beat with nostalgia, but we know that the VW Bus of the 1960s is not what we need in the 2020s. VW knows this as well. They are designing a new VW Bus that is still true to much of what was, but now fits into a new era both in style and by making it an all-electric vehicle.

Churches and ministries, like the VW Bus, have impressive histories and traditions. Some long to return to the former days doing things as they did before. However, ministry in the 2020s is distinctly different. 

The Renovations Project of the Reformed Church in America helps churches take the best of their treasured traditions and bring them into the future. Tapping the wisdom of pastors, authors, missiologists, and educators, Renovations gives congregations insights into innovation, leadership, culture, and more. 

Is your congregation ready to move your VW Bus into the 2020s? Are you a leader, an emerging leader, or a pastor who is excited to reimagine the future of ministry?

Join us for an introductory round table conversation to explore Renovations. We have two round table dates: April 26 at 12 p.m. (eastern) and May 3 at 1 p.m. (eastern) Sign up here
